concerns today that politics is getting in the way of the super storm sandy cleanup, but 60 billion in taxpayer relief, 60 billion goes straight to some labor unions and bypasses local businesses that could also use the work, but don't happen to be unionized. we'll talk about one of the builders having to fight for a piece of the pie in this tough economy. why are we requiring that these contracts go to union shops? shouldn't we be getting the cheapest deal we can with the taxpayers' money? we'll talk about it. justice is served after a disturbing attack at a train station is on surveillance. real concerns how long it took police, after the suspect. and lance armstrong came clean with oprah, or did he, and he knows exactly how to look at somebody and see if they tell the truth about something, he's going to look at lance armstrong and manti te'o. ♪ you're my favorite mistake ♪ ♪ you're my favorite mistake ♪ uo thine customers!

to the floor that didn't have the joerts of his republican support. he also brought the sandy relief aid bill to the floor that didn't have the majority of the republicans, but it did have bipartisan majority support, both on the fiscal cliff issue and the sandy issue. so if the speaker brings some of these gun measures to the president, including the background checks, perhaps even the issue of dealing with these high capacity magazines that hold 30 to 100 rounds of ammunition in them are tools of war and have no more business than they have on midwestern streets. >> we get to invite someone to the state of the union, to invite a victim of gun violence. do you think it is these kinds of personal stories and personal connections that will make a difference ultimately? >> i absolutely think the personal connections, personal aspects of this will make a clear difference. i give the president high marks for making this a senate peace early on of his new administration that he's going to push for some kind of responsible gun control legislation. we need to keep the momentum going in this. i along
conversation about what this nation can do to avoid another horrible sandy hook? all i want, all i want is a civil conversation. there's a lot of very complex pieces here and they need the best minds to figure this out. i just want the squabbling to stop. this is worst than the fiscal squabbling and the debt ceiling. you know why? the stakes are higher. we're talking human lives. those little baby angels. let's try in their memory to figure something out if stead of hurling epithat's and talking about impeaching the president and imperial presidency and all this crap. tonight i hope we'll do that. we have the president of the naacp, we have nationally syndicated lars larson and congresswoman nan hayward. i'm not opposed to types this bill. cheap shots squabbling is wrong. this is a national tragedy. we need to do something about it. ben, may i begin with you. >> sure. >> what is your position on the president's view and do you believe that if he got what he wants, it would have stopped the awful heinous tragedy at sandy hook in newtown, connecticut which is right next door to where i li
this discussion, i'll just tell you one very personal anecdote. three days before the sandy hook shooting, i was in denver, colorado, on personal business. and i was driving through the denver suburbs, and i passed into aurora rah, colorado, and saw the sign and thought to myself -- as journalists often do -- oh, my god, this just disappeared from our landscape. it happened not that long ago in which a young man, now appears to be utterly deranged, b went into a movie theater and began shooting down people with an assault weapon. and it went away. the not part of the presidential debate, it was not part of the fabric of our lives, it was not part of the daily journalistic diet. so on that wednesday night i e-mailed the producer of the "meet the press" show that was coming up on that sunday in which they would be talking about big ideas that america needs to be thinking about. and i said you should put shooting at the top of the list. we have been through aurora, the sikh temple, the oregon shopping mall, think about this, this is before we got to sandy hook. in newtown. we'd had a time of ab
republicans and we saw this happening with the sandy aid where he didn't put the sandy relief bill on the floor, moderate republicans like peter king from new york, other atlanta -- the speaker brought that up very quickly without the support of the entire caucus. he broke what we call here in washington the hastert rule, we need a majority of the majority to bring something forward. he would need to do something with guns, and without moderate republicans calling on the speaker to bring something to the floor, it's going to be very difficult for the speaker in leadership to have the political cover that they need. so if the president needs to target somebody, it's these moderate republicans and get the people in their districts riled up. >> karen, do you agree with that assessme assessment? >> i think there is a dangerous for the republican party here in the same way we have seen in a number of these other debate where is the fringe, the far right gets so ridiculous. saying that the president is using children as human shields, likening him to hitler and stallen, and some of that
sandy relief efforts. we'll have live coverage of the senate when they return at 2:15 eastern here on c-span2. going to take you live next acrosstown in washington to the democratic national committee and their winter meeting about to get underway. they're going to hear from democratic national committee chairman, debbie debbie wasserman schultz. it should get underway shortly here on c-span2. democratic national committee chairman debbie wasserman schultz will speak shortly talking about the democratic party's agenda and challenges ahead for the 113th congress. we'll have live coverage when she gets underway on c-span2. a look at the agenda ahead in transportics with secretary ray a are hood who called on congress to pass a five-year long-term transportation bill.

in sandy hook, more than 900 of our fellow americans have died at the hand of the end of a gun. if there is even one thing that can be done to end this violence and even one life to be saved, then we have an obligation to try. now tell the world daniel... of pepto-bismol to-go. plays a key role throughout our lives. one a day men's 50+ is a complete multivitamin designed for men's health concerns as we age. it has 7 antioxidants to support cell health. one a day men's 50+. >>> yes, we have had tragedies and yes, we have had too many innocent people lose their life and yes, it is unfortunate that it took those tragedies to get us to this point, but let's at least learn from what has happened. >> that was new york governor andrew cuomo signing the first gun control legislation in the wake of the sandy hook elementary school mass shooting. the new laws would expand the state's ban on assault weapons and it is the toughest the country has seen and while many are looking to the white house and capitol hill to make sweeping legislation, but perhaps swifter action is more likely to co
for superstorm sandy. the relief package was passed by the senate even though house speaker john boehner hadn't brought it up for a vote. in fact, the senate passage helped to put pressure on the house. sandy relief passed in the house with a minority of republican votes and almost every democrat. speaker boehner would not have brought the bill to the floor if it hadn't already been passed in the senate. there was similar pressure with the fiscal cliff deal. it passed in the senate first. then boehner was forced to bring it to the floor for a vote and the house, even though only a minority of republicans supported it. today senator majority leader harry reid seemed to clarify his position somewhat. in a statement he said, "i am committed to ensuring the senate will consider legislation that addresses gun violence and other aspects of violence in our society early this year. all options should be on the table." well, that sounds a little bit better. but there should be no hedging on this issue whatsoever. especially from democrats. because if they side with the president of the united states t
put it in the supplemental bill for sandy. and guess what? the house republicans stripped it out and didn't put it in their version of the sandy bill. so even today, after we know what happened, the republicans are still not willing to give her the resources to protect our diplomats abroad. >> senator, what was this hearing about today? was it about getting and finding solutions or something else? >> listen, to me, this was simply about politics, right, about two-thirds of the republicans that asked questions asked questions about a handful of tv appearances by susan rice. the fact is if republicans asked just a small percentage of the questions that they've been asking about these television appearances about the war in iraq, we wouldn't be talking about saving four lives, we would be talking about saving 4,000 lives. and so i'm glad she's being as transparent as she has been. but it's about time to focus on something bigger than this. >> senator, you have access to these intelligence materials. did you learn anything today? was there any new information that came out today? >>
in the last week or two with the sandy relief passing and also the deal to avoid the fiscal cliff, it really, those things had more democratic votes than republicans, and a lot of sensitive, you know, that happens to john boehner too many times his speakership could be in trouble. so my guess is it will come from the senate, but you've got zoe meeting quietly with a republican from florida talking about details they can bring back to their colleagues. i think actually this is one of these issues where people in both houses are going to want to take credit for being outfront on this issue. i think you're going to see a spate of bills coming forward. >> scott, this is a hot issue. lots of legislators as you mentioned are jumping on the bandwag bandwagon. the lawmakers you talked to in washington, how hopeful are they there will be a bipartisan deal reached this time around? immigration has been attempted before and it's failed. >> i think there is a lot of hope. as i said, the stars kind of are aligning on this, not only do you have republicans willing to come to the table and talk seriously a
, sandy levin. interestingly enough, sandy and i actually share act. sometimes you hear the term, reagan democrats. it was from our county. you have two. you have two very divergent beliefs coming out of a county. but one thing that is a very commonality of think of a county like mccomb, is we have budgets. we pass budgets on time. we balance them. we just think you should have a budget. interestingly enough, just before i came here, before we had our vote series, i was doing something i call congress in the classroom where i was going to call it skype, but it's the new technology as uvo. i talk to all these kids in my district, my part of the county, about things that are going on in congress. i was telling them about this particular piece of legislation that was going to come before the congress tomorrow and tell them that the senate had actually not passed a budget in almost four years. they said, how could that be? isn't there anything you can do to force that? i said, we're going to try tomorrow and it's unfortunate it has to come to that. whatever kind of budget the senate would pa
and decided to not have a vote on the sandy relief package. that made house lawmakers angry in the northeast. governor chris christie of new jersey also had some tough words for him. he pulled the proposal because conservative republicans said the bill was loaded with pork with projects not related to the storm and they should've gone through the normal appropriations process. a couple days later, he narrowly hung onto his speakership as 10 republicans did not vote for him. now -- and right after that, they ended up passing a hurricane sandy bill. even that only received 49 republican votes. all that as a backdrop, house leaders last week went to williamsburg to figure out the task force on the debt ceiling on the across-the-board spending cuts known as the sequester, coming up. also, at the end of march, we have the continuing resolution, because the senate has not passed a full budget and the two chamber is not agree to a budget, but they have been working off a continuing resolution which funds the government for certain amount of time. it will end on march 27. house leaders tried to put
the trauma of the sandy hook massacre, the urgent call to limit easy access to guns has exposed the american cultural divide over firearms. the president has offered 23 executive actions to strengthen background checks and better address mental hent and called for armed officers in schools that want them. but it's fraught with danger for the president. there are 20 democratic senate seats up for grabs in 2014, including in the gun-friendly states of arkansas, alaska, iowa, colorado and south dakota, which suggests any gun control measuresville to be a compromise. >> everyone's trying to divert from the core issue. there is a huge consensus in the country, including a vast majority of valentine republicans that things like assault weapons, high-capacity magazine, universal background check, making progress on mental health -- these are things we should and can do to help reduce gun violence. >> this is something we can do something about -- mental health, information sharing, background checks and other things as well, but it has to be a plan that could work or the president won't get it done
. plus, a big hospital finally reopening after superstorm sandy. >> how did you feel when the hurricane hit and they had to close the hospital? >> very nervous. all that kept going through in my mind is where am i going to have my baby? i was comfortable coming here. i was very nervous, and then the first day that you guys opened, and my water breaks.

in switzerland the new york yankee told the columbus dispatch, i was in new york for hurricane sandy. it needs to be addressed because we're seeing more and more natural disasters each year. it seems like something has to be causing it. i still hate derek jeter as a baseball player even though he was he is from kalamazoo michigan, but maybe i'm starting to like derek jeter the man. shudder. up next, you know a lot of people would say brett erlich has nothing in common with derek jeter. they are, of course, right and will be proving so after the break. >> it's been a hectic week and it's only thursday. here to pull everybody back in line is our own brett erlich. shh, breath's talking now. >> life's a game. sometimes you wish you were the coach of that game so you could take the idiots playing that sit them down next to you and say you're done. first up, north korea you're done testing missiles, not because it's dangerous but because it's annoying. that are you trying to intimidate us? no matter how big your missiles are, it's hard to be intimidated by a country who's other main export is big ch

now. they have taxes raised and passed the sandy relief on a bipartisan vote and they will pass immigration reform and deal with the debt ceiling. he broke the republicans's arms on that. >> still got the votes. >> sandy relief who will disagree on that? >> a lot of of people. remember how chris christie was screaming? >> screaming at -- >> house republicans. >> right. >> what happens is up until now you had something called the hastert rule in the house. republicans stood together. that has been demolished in the last month. it's going to continue to be demolished when votes on immigration comes up and solving the sequestration money comes up and also on the budget. the real test for the president is whether he is going to go up against his own caucus to do things on medicare social security and a few other issues. >> we are looking at the president on a motorcade going down pennsylvania avenue. every time i look at the inaugural route, i can't help but go back to january 20th 1977 and jimmy carter breaking precedent and stepping out of the car and shaking h
for all of them, but as a group they don't necessarily care. >> jonathan makes the point that on the sandy relief bill they did the same thing, which was register opposition, pass it with democratic help. i feel like that is sort of under mining short-changes thinking republicans, which is to say can you do this for two years? basically register opposition and then let democrats sort of push the legislation through and not have anybody clued into -- that's what you're doing? >> they really care about this. they're not making it up or fake it. they really, really think that it would be better not to raise the debt ceiling, and so what you do is let the democrats on it. we take our republicans and save seats. on things where the leadership is in tune with the base, that's going to be a harder push, because then you're asking someone to vote against their own conscience and against their political interest. >> what happens on immigration? here you actually have "gop leadership." marco rubio is selling his plan to bill o'reilly. we don't have time to play the entire sound, but he talks about g
gun safety and new polling, shows that the massacre at sandy hook elementary school is boosting broad support for stronger gun laws. a brand new nbc/"wall street journal" poll show asthma jort of americans, that's 56%, think gun control laws should be tightened in this country. in thames of specific gun proposals being considered, there's even wider support requiring background checks on all gun purchases, eliminating the 40% of gun sales that currently get no checks at all has overwhelming support. a "new york times" poll finds 9 in 10 americans support such a law. including 9 in 10 who say there is a gun in their household. a ban on high capacity magazines is backed by more than 6 in 10 and by a majority of gun owning householtz. 53% say they support a ban on semiautomatic weapons and in if youtown, aurora, tucson, or any of the some 90 gun deaths each day weren't enough, there's perhaps a new poster boy for the gun problem in america. his name is richard schmidt, a white supreme sibs with a felony conviction for manslaughter who managed to acquire an arsenal of 18 assault weapons a
of that on these big fights and it's about seizing the moment because the further and further you get from the sandy hook tragedy, the less you're likely to achieve and he's trying to make this happen swiftly. >> let's talk about second terms. how have presidents comparatively, how have they feared in his second term. that's when the big scandal happens. the iran-contra and watergate, the monica lewinsky. how can we forget and the fallout during the bush administration over the iraq war and hurricane katrina, so certainly, things could get a little worse for the president in the coming years, but he does start with the decent approval rating and at least part of congress on his side on most issues. >> you do have to wonder how much of his political capital he'll use on gun control in his short term, before immigration and not even just talking about the debt ceiling, but if he is to do -- with regard to the gun control and universal background checks and he is going to have to spend a great deal of time and a great deal of political capital to get that done. >> the white house says a few things abou
wand to say we'll look at sandy funding for the hurricane victims then take this up in a couple of days. why not do it today? you're riding the wave of the inaugural address yesterday. are these guys even serious about reform or do they just always want to be able to play good cop against republicans in a pantomime that never ends? >> two things you have to recall about this particular incident. the first is that the senate is a clubby atmosphere. it is like -- somebody described it as one of the most exclusive clubs in america. only 100 members. it doesn't change very often. they want to be able to get along with each other and look as though they've got some kind of comedy. they've got some kind of gentlemen's arrangement that can move things forward. the problem with that theory is the republicans haven't been playing under those rules for years. we've got a supermajority that's required to get anything done and a minority that can actively block it. the second thing is a lot of the leadership is coming from the top, down. not from the bottom, up. you have the udall merkley bill that
the victims of hurricane sandy. these were debated in the senate. we have to take prevent costumes and preventions before another hurricane sandy. thousands of homes and businesses were destroyed in new york, new jersey, and new england, and 10,000 americans were left homeless. we have a responsibility to rebuild their lives and their communities. as we have done with those who are victims of fire and other natural disasters and other parts of the nation. we will consider changes to the senate rules. because this is a matter of additional debate, we reserve the right of all senators to oppose changes to the senate rules. it is my intention that the senate rules are continued and allow these important rules discussion to continue. i'm hopeful am cautiously optimistic that the republicans and democrats can reach an agreement to manage the senate more effectively in coming months. >> republican leader? >> mr. president, i want to start by co want to start by congratulating president obama on his inauguration. presidential inauguration to always time for the country to come together. w
that none of the changes would have done a darn thing about aurora, colorado or sandy hook, that's he demeaning, to suggest to americans we're going to take away your liberties and further infringe on your ability to own a particular type of gun and we know that it's not going to change the murders of americans that happen. >> megyn: i think that tone he struck, don't patronize your opposition because they seem to have heart felt beliefs on this issue. obama's been criticized for not getting that. when we went it break we played the sound bite of him saying the only reason you're seeing the long lines for the gun stores right now, because people are trying to gin up their own ratings or their own profits. i mean, president clinton, i presume, is not trying to do that. there are people who really genuinely believe this is an infringement on their constitutional rights and does the left risk alienate that, not just the left, but gun control people, by not acknowledging that's a real heart felt belief? >> look, i come from gun hunting, we had the first day of gun hunting off. >> megyn: w
and devastation we recently saw up here with hurricane sandy. >> that's correct. we kind of developed our business model with katrina and learning with katrina what we needed to do for disaster relief and response and understood back then that you had to elevate the houses using this toarl prevent flooding. and here back in our own backyard we have sandy, and still to this date we have thousands of people without homes, without jobs, you know? everybody is struggling right at this point, and we need to do something. in november we put together a seminar where we put together four points of how we needed to start to respond to this. the first point was to get worker housing, you know, using the panels we can build quickly. the second part was to give the people back some type of a home that they can get back to while their homes are being reconstructed, so we came up with an emergency response pod which is part of our safe hut division. and these are collapsible trailers that can be put in front of the homes. then we have panels that can be used as curtain molds around the existing -- uma: it's def
